Re: "driven by greed"
Of course! Poor Apple, they are not driven by greed at all are they?
Apple produce their products for the good of human kind!!
Proview are doing EXACTLEY the same as Apple, trying to maximise revenue over their IP. Apple does the same thing day in and day out.
DOUBLE STANDARDS. But Apple will get away with it again.
Thick as pigs s ite patene office will grant it.
Cause it's Apple and only Apple innovate!!
I suspect that some one is receiving it in the rear from Apple, which is why they are the Americans golden boy and seem to win every fight! It's just too suspicious.
Here we go again!
These patents are ridiculous! Pateneting and method of unlocking the phone by sliding your fingure across a screen? Really! That was pateneted?
W O W F ckwits! Humans really are F ckwits!
"If this causes them to take their eyes off the road more than before the ban, then the bans may make texting more dangerous rather than eliminating it."
This excuse is used in a variety of situations. It's bull sh te! Strict enforcement, in this case life time driving bans and mandatory jail time EVERYTIME will make people think twice! Make offenders punishments visible.
And if they still break to rules and plough into a truck, then they have instrumented their own punishment!
I can hear the cries now! STOP pandering to the weak and enforce our laws effectively!
Seems the Americans are sexual deviants! Insisting on body scanners in the name of security. No one believes you!
Does any one else think it's a bit of a waste of time? 4G promises better coverage, and all that that argument entails........
Does anyone else think Apple are becoming a bit "wooo wooo"? (circles finger near temple)
W O W they really want to be Big Brother!
W O W! Are you kidding with this sh te?
Still waiting for the balls to drop are we?
Unfortunately, the display suffers from an acute viewing angle, ..... very difficult to read from oblique angles at the sides.....
This is a bonus, extra security, more difficult for passers by to snoop!
Re: To hell with the office.
"depending on the team, the work, personal preference, etc"
Personal preference i.e. think taht being seen with a MAC makes them cool!
Oh how you are mistaken!
Re: For once, an FCC ruling with which I can agree...
"I generally don't like it when government bureaucrats unnecessarily interfere with free markets, but"
That pesky BUT!
Re: Want to bet...
An 8 year old has searched the net and found this as a solution!
Why have the perents allowed an 8year old to search the net! Why wasn't he playing outside?
WOW 'glish parents have no clue!
".....seen as evidence of a power struggle within the church....."
Or may be some is genuinely shocked at the Church's actions, they wish to expose them!
That can only be a good thing!
Be prepared for another £3Bn wasted.
Then the next time any political party or supporter bangs on about wasted money on IT projects, BOTH parties can be blamed!
Good ole headlines, skew the truth!
Android outsold frisherpriceOS twofold! Maybe that would have been a more acurate headline!
"....whilst "we" don't mind giving private info to Fb & G in exchange for various services..."
WE DO mind! YOU may not!
"And as for that "use 15% of disposable income to keep them running" nonsense, well, this report is pants."
Little do you know! The earliest "i"clone adopters paid through the teeth to have the supposed status of owning one. That's one of the reasons why now being seen with one is akin to bragging about having a betamax!
"They'll happily hand over their most-personal information to Google and Facebook, let Amazon and Opera see every website they visit, and tell a stranger their passwords for a bar of chocolate, but being tracked by a mobile operator is apparently a step too far"
The differences being those people CHOOSE to hand over the info, and not have it STOLEN by the carrier.
And remember, not everyone DOES hand over information or is happy for Amazon or Opera to view their browsing habits. Companies seem to think they have a right to it and act underhandedly to obtain it!
Really hope it does happen. Couldn't happen to a more deserving company.
".......had the taste and good sense to follow you first..."
Eh? Confused! How, when why?????
Since when do Witter followers have taste or sense? 16 year olds would say that, till their balls drop! or some other "cool" social network becomes more popular.
Ah! You must be one the "Cool trendy young" types!
Or gullible and easily impressed, baaaaaah!
Your kidding if you think this is cool. Kids, tisk, they know now't.
Explains why iOS is not only crap and looks as old as Nora Batty's sockings!
W O W Apple, Same sh te, different day! Break the record will ya?
Yes, we know your product is poor. Yes, we know that once a punter buys a nexus, they'll continue to laugh loudly at Apple carriers and those (snigger) "Young, cool and trendy" types!
Maybe you should offer something better? iPhone *was* good, 6 years ago. It's not any more, get over it and move on with the rest of the world!
Apple TV already exists and no one wants it. Thats what is wrong.
So Apple will put an "i" infront of TV and millions of plebs will rush to buy it!
Get a life!
Are you kidding? If you are not, then W O W!
I'd like to see you repair a fibre cable when it is freezing cold, dark and dangerous! Typical English, engage the mouth before the brain.
Also, what is wrong with you, have you not got a mobile phone? Are you not able to connect via the mobile network in times when the fixed infrastructure is down?
All it takes is a little though instead of a lot of whinging.
(mumsy and father didn't do a very good job their)
If a person dies because 999 cannot be contacted, the toe rags responsible for cutting the phones off need to be properly and severely punished. Maybe charging them with attempted murder?
Not that the English know what “properly and severely punished” means. ½ can’t even control their own kids.
Thats how to parent! English "parents" could take a lesson here.
"Halliburton is the latest in a long line of companies...." to be mislead into believing that the iPhone would give them some status. Of course the reality is eveyone else whill see them as backwards and behind the times by 6 years!
W O W!
"iPhones are regarded as being highly aspirational" to the weak and feeble minded!
Hardly surprising. China flocks to buy a "tainted" iPhone. SAYS IT ALL!
"i"'ll still buy an iPhone and sign a petition. GET REAL!
All these iPhone users asking questions, most probably, why the hell did I bother with this? Should have got a decent phone.
"Apple's plea for fairness in mobile patent war"
What, like anyone can trust Apple!
" "LIVE services". The latter will alert the motorist to upcoming traffic issues (presumably to stop them slamming into the back of a long queue that has formed)."
Any driver who needs a box to tell them that a Q of traffic is ahead of them shouldn't be on the roads! 10 Years of driving and I've never needed one.
Mind you, watching the numpty drivers in England today, at least 1/2 of them need one!
"Fair Pay" My Ar e!
Its just another way these insurance companies can charge us higher premiums.
If you think otherwise, you'll understand as you age and gain some wisdom.
This should be made illegal now and stop the discrimination that it will lead to.
PUNCH anyone who purchases an iTV!
Apple telly has been available for YEARS and no one wants it.
Put an "i" in front and all the spazz's flock to it! See, I told you!
"That horrible MetroUI that's like it's been teleported from 1990"
WOW, can I have some of those drugs your taking? They seem to be very strong!
When, in the 90's, were live tiles used?
"But a taskbar where all the commonly used apps are permanently on it has worked brilliantly for me. "
I HATE IT! Why change what worked well for the majority?
Now that would be "Magical, Revolutionary even!"
" My complaint was promptly removed."
Of course, drones need to shut up and obey!
These apps aren't crashing, they're trying to escape from the iPhone and the "person" using it!
Good lad, missed the point completely!
"innovative" Apple poaches talent from elsewhere.
Takes the shine off Apple! You listening, fannyboys?
"Almost inevitably many........." PC owners have very little knowledge and ZERO motivation to learn leaving us ALL to suffer the consequences.
"...The smartphone market is one driven by a desire for unique and distinctive devices"
NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!
If it were true, there would not be any army of iClones out there! They can't all be unique and distinctive devices.
The market is driven by sad people who believe that owning an iPhone makes them special. That "hey look I'm cool cause i've got an iPhone too" crowd.
Have you not worked that out yet?
you can say that again
"... the ASA will have its work cut out if wants to take on people for talking crap on the internet"
Christ! FB and Witter would be F cked if the ASA had teeth. Of course, like all UK regs bodies, they talk just as much c ap as they try to invesitgate.
More accurate reporting perhaps.......
"....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for a "DECENT" iPhone....." OR
"....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for an iPhone that doesn't make the owner look like a twat......" OR
".....SumOfUs, has started a petition calling for iPhone 5 to be as good as, or try to be better than ICS..."
Like any iPhone owner cares about anyone else? BOLLOX. They only care that their peers see them with an iPhone, so they can inflate their status amongst their kind.
